Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

Calories: 174kcal | Carbohydrates: 0.9g | Protein: 13g | Fat: 13g


  • 250 g (8.8 oz) best-quality Camembert round
  • 1 clove garlic, thinly sliced into shards
  • 40 g (1.4 oz) dry white wine
  • 2 sprigs of fresh thyme, leaves picked


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven). This is 200°C for conventional ovens (or 400°F / gas mark 6).
  • Place the Camembert in a small baking dish (or Camembert baker if you have one). Peel and slice the garlic into very thin shards.
  • Use a small paring knife to make many little incisions in the top of the cheese and slide the garlic pieces deep into them. It is important that the garlic is very thinly sliced because it won't be in the oven that long and you want to ensure any rawness is cooked out. Try insert them as deep as possible to prevent any exposed areas burning (like a few did in my pic!)
  • Pour the white wine over the cheese into the dish and scatter over the picked thyme leaves. I always place mine onto a tray for easier removal.
  • Bake in the oven for 22-24 minutes until the whole lot melts into a gooey mess. Serve scooped up with keto crackers (I have a few different types on Fats of Life... just run a search!)
